Free Parking

All metered parking throughout downtown offers 20 minutes of FREE parking per session. (You must push the button on the parking meter to activate this). Many students’ parents take advantage of this as an opportunity to drop their kids and run errands to Trader Joe’s or any number of local business during lesson times. If you decide to stay or are taking lessons yourself, don’t forget to push the button before you pay to reduce your overall parking fee.

There is also free parking available in the ParkBOI Garages, which offer the first 60 minutes for free.

There is on-street parking on Main Street and many of the surrounding blocks, as well as off-street parking in garages and select parking lots. Please note that the parking meters accept credit/debit card payment, Downtown Boise gift cards, payment through the Parkmobile smartphone app and traditional coin payments. Parking meters are enforced from 8am – 8pm Monday – Friday, and 10am – 5pm on Saturdays. Parking is free outside of these hours and all day on Sundays. Parking is also free on these holidays: New Year’s Day, Martin Luther King Jr. Day, President’s Day, Memorial Day, Labor Day, Veteran’s Day, Thanksgiving, & Christmas.
